Should we edit answers to remove these "stating I'm late" openings, which (IMO) add nothing to the answer?

  • I know this is a tad late but
  • I know this is an older question, but
  • I am answering in case someone else runs across the question.
  • Sorry for posting to an old thread

It's just as useless as "hello guys" and "okay, here is the solution," so yes. In general, it's safe to delete anything that doesn't add value.

Automatically edit it? Manually, sure. We're busy people here. CHOP-CHOP
